MALVERN Day Care, which supports people with dementia, has a new phone number, and wants everybody to know what it is.

The centre, based at the Lodge, in Graham Road, is part of the charity Friends of the Elderly and has been active for the last 18 years.

Due to an upgrade of its telephone system, the centre now has, for the first time, its own landline number, which is 01684 218281, and which replaces the old mobile number.

Manager Shirley Bradley said: “I want to make sure our clients, their families and professional stakeholders can get hold of us after knowing our old number for so long, so I am asking for your readers’ help to let anyone they know in the local community who use our services about the change.”
